More Exciting Site Notes

As I slowly but … well, slowly piece this site together by posting show links and such, a few things to look for. Other than typos, wrong links, and all such related gaffes I know full well will happen.

In the “in process for existing posts” department, I’m adding a link to each artist’s name for their website, if they have one, or Facebook page. Not everyone has an official page, so in some cases it is to a Facebook fan page. In other cases the link is for one member only; for example, Vector links to Jimmy Abegg’s website, and Undercover links to original lead singer Bill Walden’s Facebook page for his current musical project with singer Allie Hammond. Not all of the posts are updated yet, so please bear with.

One of the advantages of using WordPress is the ability to backdate posts. Thus, I’m making each post’s publication date the day it first aired on BlackLight Radio. This keeps things in order.

You say you want to find every single show that has a particular artist? Scroll down to the bottom of any given post and look for the tags, which has all the artists listed from said show. Click on your artist of choice and you’ll get a page listing every show in which they appear.

And back to work I go.

 

Welcome!

This is the revised and hopefully reenergized site for Cephas Hour on BlackLight Radio!

Each week since May of 2012, Cephas Hour brings you sixty minutes of the finest Christian rock and pop from the 1980, with an occasional nod toward the 1970s and the 1990s (sometimes even more recent than that) as well. Curated, culled, and sometimes cuddled by yours truly Jerry Wilson, veteran CCM journalist and author of God’s Not Dead (And Neither Are We): The story of Christian alternative rock’s pioneers then and now, as told by the artists themselves, Cephas Hour showcases both the artistic excellence of a regrettably overlooked time period in Christian music and reminds us that while musical styles and artists may come and go, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

The site is still very much a work in progress; with over one hundred and thirty shows plus nearly three dozen Cephas Hour of Praise (sixty minutes of uninterrupted praise, worship, and contemplation music) shows needing uploading and cataloging, it’ll be a spell before everything is caught up. In the meanwhile, enjoy what’s here!
